Janet's cancer quilt

Over the weekend I finished up a quilt that Karen ordered a few weeks back for her Aunt Janet who is currently battling cancer. She gave me some wonderful scriptures and family photos that I incorporated along with several Moda fabrics- From the Blush line- Cherish in Milk Chocolate, Moda Eva Lavish Wood Grain in Duchess (pink), Blush - Charmed Sky blue grunge & a basic black/white polka dots. I did some simple large blocks of just fabric, a few bento blocks that had 3 fabrics, and majority of the blocks were the photo blocks which incorporated both photos & scriptures along with the fabrics. Each block measured 13 1/2" square- finished quilt came to about 43" X 70" - a nice size lap quilt for Janet.

I backed the quilt with some warm pink flannel & left over fabrics.

I found a fun little place to photograph the quilt yesterday. I hate photographing early in the day, the sun is so harsh, but I was kid free so I had no choice! ha!
I came across this HUGE old tree that is currently completely covered in blooming wisteria. (MMM did it smell glorious!) Found a broken down fence perfect to throw the quilt over, however it was WINDY! Not ideal for pictures, but what does it matter- I think the quilt speaks for itself!
The quilt is currently in route to it's new home. Praying for Janet's victory over cancer. Hoping in the mean time she knows just how loved she is by her family and that this quilt brings her physical and emotional warmth :)

Beautiful work! I especially like the black-white polka dot choice; it makes the rest of it pop nicely.
